by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:44 pm ET) Yankees reliever Chasen Shreve was charged with his first career blown save, after he couldn't keep a one-run lead in the sixth inning.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:42 pm ET) Indians outfielder Michael Brantley went 3 for 4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Astros. Brantley had gone 46 games since his last longball, as he hadn't homered since May 14. 

His fifth home run of the season gave the Indians their second run in the sixth inning. He's now batting .282 over his last 10 games.

Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi gets no-decision
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(10:35 pm ET) Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi took a no-decision against Oakland on Tuesday, the first start in the last four that hasn't resulted in a win for him. 

Eovaldi lasted 5 1/3 innings, the third straight outing where he's failed to go six innings. He allowed two runs, continuing a string of four starts in a row allowing two or fewer runs. 

Eovaldi left with a one-run lead, but the Yankees bullpen couldn't preserve it, and the Yankees lost in extra innings. 


Astros SP Vincent Velasquez gives up two runs in loss on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(10:34 pm ET) Astros rookie starter Vincent Velasquez was solid in his outing against the Indians on Tuesday. He went 6 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits, while walking two and striking out five. 

However, he was left with a tough-luck loss, as the Astros were unable to push across a run in the 2-0 defeat.

Velazquez (0-1) gave up an early run in the first inning, and then surrendered a solo home run off the bat of Michael Brantley in the sixth inning for the only pair of runs to score on him. The rookie owns a 3.94 ERA on the season.

Following the game, the Astros optioned Velasquez to Double-A Corpus Christi in order to preserve innings. With the All-Star break approaching, Velasquez is not expected to pitch for the Hooks, according to MLB.com.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Kluber needed 119 pitches (80 strikes) to get through the 6 2/3 innings, his shortest outing since June 14. 

The seven strikeouts on Tuesday give him 148 on the season, temporarily surpassing Clayton Kershaw and Chris Sale for tops in the big-leagues.

Astros SS Jed Lowrie making progress from thumb injury
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(10:23 pm ET) Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie has begun taking batting practice and fielding ground balls, reports MLB.com.

Lowrie has been out for the last 10 weeks after he tore a ligament in his right thumb which required surgery. His next step is to take a full round of batting practice.

"When he's ready to go out and play, we'll have a game plan for him as he gets into games," manager A.J. Hinch said. "I talk to him every day in some capacity. We've really haven't gotten too specific. He's taken ground balls at short and third. He's watching and he understands. He's played just about everywhere in his career, but having a definitive plan -- until we put a calendar in front of him where he's going to go, [Double-A] Corpus [Christi] or [Triple-A] Fresno, it's nothing that we're discussing."
